AMD is expected to announce its next-gen Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series on November 7, with the release of its 64C/128T flagship Ryzen Threadripper 3990X processor in January 2020. But now it's time for a look at the packaging for the next-gen workstation CPUs.
VideoCardz is behind the leak once again, with the purported packaging of AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. This retail packaging could end up being a limited or collectors edition packaging, as it really is that good. This could be an early design from AMD and might have changed between its inception and final release, so I guess we'll find out once they fully announce and unveil the Ryzen Threadripper 3000 chips.
We are to expect the two slower/less core count Ryzen Threadripper 3970X and 3960X processors to launch first, with review NDAs expiring on November 19. The flagship Ryzen Threadripper 3990X with its purported 64C/128T should be arriving in a couple of months, with AMD reportedly set to drop the Threadripper 3990X in January 2020.
According to the previous rumors on AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series, this is what we should expect:
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X - 24C/48T
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X - 32C/64T
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3980X - 48C/96T
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X - 64C/128T
